Jacob Lewis' 6-yard keeper with 1:04 remaining gave No. 3 Bishop McGuinness a 28-24 victory over No. 4 Tulsa Kelley in the Class 5A quarterfinals in Tulsa.
The Fighting Irish (11-1) advance to play seventh-ranked Carl Albert next week in a rematch between District 5A-2 teams. McGuinness won the first meeting 42-32 in Week 5. That loss dropped the Titans to 1-4 and they lost again the following week, but since have won six straight.
Lewis had a 5-yard run and threw a 12-yard TD pass to Cody Chancellor to give McGuinness a 14-0 first-quarter lead. Kelley (9-3) then scored three times in the second quarter, the last of those a 35-yard interception return by lineman Cody Davis.
A 74-yard run by Lewis late in the third tied the score before Kelley took the lead one last time on a 34-yard field goal.
Guthrie falls to T. East Central
Defending Class 5A champion Guthrie had its season end Friday night with a 20-13 loss at top-ranked Tulsa East Central.
The Bluejays, who had beaten East Central in the quarterfinals twice in the past three seasons, were outgained 447-194 and managed only 79 yards passing.
Dutton scored on a keeper four plays after a Cardinal fumble to give Guthrie an early 7-0 lead, but East Central answered with two second-quarter touchdowns to make it 14-7. Guthrie's only points after that came on an 82-yard kickoff return by J.T. McFadden before halftime.
The Bluejays (10-2) threatened midway through the fourth quarter, but Dutton was stopped just short of a first down on a fourth-and-1 carry at the Cardinals 7-yard line.
Third-ranked Seminole got 269 yards rushing and four touchdowns from Trenton Newson in a 52-14 victory over Plainview in Class 3A. Newson scored on a 58-yard run to begin the rout, and added three other long TDs — 66, 55 and 35 yards.
Papi White had 125 yards and two touchdowns for Seminole (11-0), which will play host to Metro Christian next week.
